Comments on: Reference to Gore http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2008/08/01/reference-to-gore/ Reader reaction to Reuters news Fri, 18 Nov 2011 06:49:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: C.Elder http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2008/08/01/reference-to-gore/comment-page-1/#comment-340334 Wed, 06 Aug 2008 12:46:47 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2008/08/01/reference-to-gore/#comment-340334 I am not a critic of Gore nor even an American.But Reuters was accurate in saying Gore is (not has been, as he continues to be) mocked as a BORE and as a person who exaggerates.Anyone who has heard him speak,and not just republicans or critics,soon concludes that Gore is an exaggerating bore.So no inaccuracy,nor implied criticism from Reuters,just FACTS,which is as it should be.And that is why Reuters in its answer has nothing to retract or amend.

Your editor simply notes that they received a lot of commentary about this loaded sentence, but no action is taken? Explanations offered? No?

Strictly speaking Reuters is 100@ accurate – Gore has been mocked for allegedly exaggerating – by critics, mostly right-wing.

Addition of those two simple words “by critics” would have taken a lot of sting out of a sentence obviously designed to draw readers in.

Worked, it did.

Journalism, it’s not.

If a person can’t see how this charlatan is creating a hysterical crisis for his own personal gain via scam carbon credits and his various hedge funds, then he or she is in major denial. The climate is changing but the human contribution is so minimal it is laughable. All of you on the bandwagon will eat crow when the temperature starts to precipitously drop due to the inactive solar cycle we are currently experiencing. I hope when the realization sets in, you all will vow to stop listening to this anti-capitalist, environmental extremist propaganda. One can only hope.

First of all I was there and there were may be 700-800 people not “THOUSANDS OF FANS” like he wrote. She lip synced and people were pretty annoyed at her.

Why did two very pro-Gore articles appeared within 30 minutes of each other?

Obama is about to fulfill a 6 year pledge to step aside for Al Gore a few weeks before the convention.
